I'm seriously behind in posting my recommendations for 2019, I've decided to post for 2 months this time.  I hope it won't become a habit.

In these 15 books, there are some authors that you can never go wrong with.  Instead of recommending them separately, I'm going to list them, and you can consider them recommended!

  1. James Lee Burke
  2. Kate Atkinson
  3. Lisa Genova
  4. Val McDermid

Read any of there books and you won't be disappointed.

Becoming by Michelle Obama is my favorite from this list, it's outstanding.  It's been on the NYT's bestseller list for 23 weeks for good reason.

An American Summer by Alex Kotlowitz is an eyeopener!  The subtitle is Love and Death in Chicago.  It's well written and well researched, I'm rooting for Chicago to turn the corner and become safer.

If I could only use one word to describe Hooligan, a debut novel, it would be "gripping". The characters brawl, love, hate, and booze like nobody's business. Written in German and translated.

This Story is a Lie is listed as YA, but I think it's for everyone. It's a roller coaster novel about family and memory, it really captivated me.
